AbstractThis chapter highlights the goals and achievements of NATO/RTO/AVT Task Group AVT-080: Leading-edge Vortex Breakdown over Slender Wings. After a survey and assessment of current experimental data in NATO and PfP countries, eight reliable experimental data sets have been collected and compiled. These data sets include time-average results at static model conditions, ensemble-average results at dynamic model conditions and unsteady results at static/dynamic model conditions. Ten state-of-the-art numerical solutions have been obtained on an ONERA 70° delta wing test caseusing different numerical methods, codes and grids For other wing configurations and test the effects of tunnel wall interference and of interactions between vortices are calculated. In addition to the experimental data and computational solutions, three advanced analytical solutions are included.
